FEBRUARY IS THE MONTH OF VALENTINE DAY. To promote the Holiday designed for Romance GreatGold is including special Valentines Day songs throughout each day during the entire month.
FEBRUARY IS ALSO BLACK HISTORY MONTH, which is the perfect time for all of us to remember that it was the melting of music by white, black and brown musicians that brought about Rock and Roll.
We all need to make note of Black History Month for many reasons. One of those reasons is wrapped up in the fact that a large percentage of Rock and Roll owes a lot to early black and brown musicians, many of which are on the GreatGold, everyday playlist.
The pioneers of Rock, and their influences on the genre, are a great part of Black History, and, GreatGold Classic Hit Oldies Internet Radio honors them every day through every year.
